Little Rock Toxic Tort Attorneys

Representing Victims of Widespread Toxic Exposure

If you or someone you love has been injured or diagnosed with a serious medical condition after being exposed to a harmful substance, you could be entitled to compensation. By filing or participating in a toxic tort, you could be awarded restitution for your medical expenses, lost wages, financial losses, pain and suffering, legal costs, and other damages.

A toxic tort is a type of legal claim in which multiple plaintiffs similarly affected by toxic exposure seek restitution from a single liable party, known as the defendant. At Potts Law Firm, we represent clients in all types of toxic tort claims. Our attorneys have a history of taking on powerful manufacturers, corporations, and other entities—and winning the results their clients needed. We have successfully helped those harmed by toxic chemicals, poisonous gases, defective pharmaceutical medications, harmful pesticides, and other dangerous substances.

How to Tell If You Have a Toxic Tort Claim

Many illnesses and medical conditions associated with toxic exposure have a long latency period. This means that it can take years or even decades for the effects of toxic exposure to show up. While some conditions are only known to be caused by exposure to certain substances, others may have multiple causes. It can be unclear whether your or your loved one’s illness or medical condition is truly the result of toxic exposure.

You may have a toxic tort claim if you can prove each of the following:

  • You were exposed to a harmful or toxic substance
  • The exposure was prolonged and/or severe
  • You developed an injury, illness, or medical condition
  • The injury, illness, or medical condition was related or presumed related to the toxic substance to which you were exposed

Some examples of common illnesses and medical conditions associated with toxic exposure include:

  • Mesothelioma
  • Asbestosis
  • Hodgkin’s disease
  • Certain respiratory illnesses, such as asthma
  • Skin disorders, such as contact dermatitis
  • Silicosis
  • Heart disease
  • Stroke
  • Various forms of cancer, such as leukemia, lymphoma, and lung cancer

To have a case, you will also need to prove that someone else—whether an employer, a manufacturer, or some other entity—is liable for your damages. This involves proving that they not only owed you a duty of care but also breached that duty of care, leading to your injury, illness, or medical condition.

Understanding Toxic Torts

A “tort” is a negligent or wrongful act, including infringements on others’ rights, that leads to civil liability. A toxic tort, therefore, is an instance in which one party is legally liable for wrongfully or negligently exposing others to a toxic substance.

Harmful exposure to toxic substances often affects more than one person. For example, contaminated groundwater can expose entire communities to dangerous and potentially fatal chemicals; a defective medication can put millions of people at risk. As a result, many toxic torts involve multiple plaintiffs. However, it is also possible to file a single-plaintiff toxic tort claim. In either case, you can seek compensation specific to your damages.

At Potts Law Firm, we represent clients in both single-plaintiff and mass tort litigation involving toxic exposure to a variety of harmful chemicals, pollutants, and other substances. Our Little Rock toxic tort attorneys have extensive experience and a proven track record of success going up against global corporations and manufacturers.
